So you just bought your first iPhone?

It is stable, fluid and intuitive, and that makes its use much easier even for those unaware of Apple's mobile environment. Today we bring you a set of tricks and “little things” that all users of an iPhone (and therefore iOS) should know to have the most complete experience possible. Are you an iPhone veteran? Keep reading, you may also find some other trick you don't know.

1- How to turn the iPhone on and off

We start with the most basic, but surely a user at some point supposed a headache, especially with the iPhone without a start button.

There are two ways, differentiated by what iPhone are intended. The first is for all iPhone up to iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and earlier, and could not be easier:

1 Hold the lock button either side or top of your iPhone until a red sliding button appears on your device that says “Swipe to turn off”

2 Slide it. That's it, your iPhone has turned off.

On the other hand, there is the form for the iPhone from X onwards, for which we proceed as follows:

1 Press and hold the lock and volume up or down button at the same time until a sliding button that says “Slide to turn off” appears.

2 Swipe to turn off your iPhone.

As you can see, the method is very similar in both cases but given that in the iPhone of the X onwards, if we keep the lock button, Siri is invoked, they had to include a second key to be able to leave a button for the assistant of the Cupertino.

2- How to make a screenshot

In the same way as before, there are two methods according to the iPhone we have. For iPhone up to 8 and 8 Plus, once we have the screen we want to capture ready, we must press the start button and the lock button at the same time. A flash will be produced and our capture will appear in the lower left corner of our screen, in case it is the case that we would like to edit the image taken, make any point on it or indicate some information.

<div data-ad=

For the iPhone from X onwards the process is exactly the same, except that instead of using the combination of Start + Lock buttons in this case we must press the volume up and block button at the same timeor. The same happens as before, a flash appears and we will have our capture to edit as we mentioned in the previous paragraph.

3- How to create keyboard shortcuts for the iPhone

iOS allows us to create custom shortcuts on our devices to write faster or to create default responses for particular circumstances. For example, we can instruct the keyboard so that when we write the word "Reunion" it gives us the option to automatically complete a message saying that at that time you are gathered and cannot answer. To configure this we must follow these steps:

1 Open “Settings” and go to “General”, in “General” click on “Keyboard”.

2 In the “Keyboard” options we select “Text substitution”.

3 Click on the “+” in the upper right corner of the “Text substitution” menu.

Once we have arrived here the iPhone ask us for the phrase we want to be written and for its "Quick Function" to be the text to replace. We configure it and click on “Save” in the upper right corner. Hereinafter, When we write the text that we have configured in the “Quick Function” it will give us the option of being replaced by the phrase that we have configured for it.

4- How to open contextual mens with 3D Touch or Haptic Touch

The iPhone allows us to perform different operations if we perform longer presses in the case of devices with Haptic Touch (iPhone XR, 11 and 11 Pro) or pulsations with more force on devices with 3D Touch (iPhone 6S, 7, 8, X and XS, and all their respective versions Plus or Max). For this, simply hold a stronger or longer press on the iOS elements to see how they react. With this function we can move the cursor to an exact position when we want to move it over a text that we are writing, we can open quick access through the icons of many apps, see previews of a website or image and so on. Ahead, try to test it on the different elements of your device.
